"Gentle Dragon" by Tuttie Peetz
We practice an art form that is unique to the Pacific Northwest and forms the basis of driftwood sculpture techniques utilized in creating exquisite sculptures. The goal is to reveal the inner beauty of the wood. The driftwood artist sees, develops, and refines the natural shapes and designs of found wood into a work of art.
Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at the historic Prairie Grange, 290 McCleay Rd. from 10 am to 1 pm. For directions and full details go to "Meetings" found in the drop down menu under the EVENTS page.
"Above & Beyond"
Olympic Driftwood Sculptors is an active and enthusiastic group.
ODS strives to educate, promote and share driftwood sculpture in an open environment where congeniality and the free exchange of ideas is encouraged. We are a fun-loving organization, sharing the joys and concerns of all our
members. ODS raises funds to enable us to offer Scholarships to students in our local schools. We support the Dungeness River Audubon Center and hold two shows a year there. We host our largest show of the year in support of the Annual Sequim Lavender Festival . Besides meeting once a month, we also organize wood gathering excursions, hold workshops, and have several potlucks.
ODS presents shows at: the Dungeness River Audubon Center, the Sequim Lavender Festival, and the Clallam County Fair.
We are a member of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce, Dungeness River Audubon Center, and the Sequim Museum and Arts Center.

Artist are free to use whatever tools, materials and methods they desire.This allows the artist to expand their creativity. You are only limited by your imagination!
